Don Day Fresh Korean Grill and Buffet

After a long hiatus, I will now be posting a review for a restaurant we tried one Saturday lunch. Due to the Christmas rush, our trip from Taguig to Tandang Sora took almost two hours, on our way home, with reservations whether we’ll survive the traffic or not, we decided to eat lunch first at Don Day, as we had wonderful food when we first visited a few months back.
The spread was very generous, it was separated into two stations, one on each side of the restaurant. It was a great deal as there were several selections to choose from, and a feast for the eyes as well. One of the things I like about Korean food is that the array of colors is a sight to behold, aside from the taste it’s also a beauty to look at.
You would have a hard time deciding on what to try, I recommend to take tasting portions first and then after eat what you want. When I counted there were about 20 choices that were provided, so it’s a selection you have to really dissect to know what best suits your palette.
I think I had three full plate servings, it was a delight and was SO GOOD. The first time we came, we thought we would pass by again if ever we were in the area and I kept my promise and tried it again.
The pork was so tasty, if you overcook it what you’ll get is a bacon like consistency and if you cook it well enough, so tender and juicy. Now the beef is in another level, whatever part they used was truly superb, once it cooks you’ll have one of the better beef experiences you’ll ever have. And they never scrimp on what they give you, as long as you ask for it, it will keep on coming.
If you want a filling Korean Grill fix at a relatively budget friendly rate, then go and try Don Day. This is our second try and I will definitely come back, even as it is quite far from home. The meat was superb, the ingredients were fresh and the dishes were nicely prepared. They also recently renovated and is now twice the space that they used to have.
For the meat alone, it’s worth going and the Chapchae, which has become my favorite Korean dish. Two thumbs up and highly recommended!
